Mills & Boon protects its ample, throbbing assets

Danger, deception and desire are not normally words one would associate with the IT industry, still less with e-mail security. However, word reaches us that the publisher Mills & Boon has bolstered its e-mail and web security by merging its security systems.

The publisher, which specialises in romantic fiction, previously employed two service providers – one for e-mail and another for web protection – but it said neither measured up to the heaving bosom of its engorged standards.

Steve Smith, IS manager at Mills & Boon, said, “Having the two services under one roof is ideal. Since implementation, the service issues associated with e-mail and the web have reduced to zero.”

From the above quote it is clear that Smith has no involvement in the writing of romance fiction whatsoever, which is a shame. The company publishes romance stories in many settings, from bodily shenanigans in the medical profession to medieval tales with plenty of jousting.

The publisher does not, however, appear to have any books based on the exotic underbelly of IT support.
